We've all been there. You nod off in the taxi ride home after a night out and wake up feeling confused and gross.

But one drunken reveller passed out the moment he sat down in the passenger seat – and wasn't awake long enough to give the driver his address.

Ahroon Razaq, 42, couldn't wake him from his slumber to find out where he lived.

So in a moment of pure genius, his boss posted a photo of the sleeping beauty on the firm's Facebook page. He hoped someone would recognise the man and give them his address to get him home safely.

Hi there, if any one is still awake and recognises this person could you please forward an address as this Male has fallen asleep in one of the taxis and the driver has not a clue where to take him. Thanks

Jonny Helm, 26, then woke up but in a moment of panic, did a runner and got the bus home.

He wasn't aware of anything that had happened until he woke up the next morning, to hundreds of Facebook messages from pals who'd recognised his photo.

The father-of-one, from Lancashire, said he had been "on it" since 1.30pm and got a little carried away while watching Burnley beat Huddersfield.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I suppose it's quite funny."
